Easter and a Birthday

I've been making family Easter cards for a few years now and thought i'd do something a bit different from the cutsie ones for my Mum & Mum-in-Law. I wanted to do religious but somehow they looked too much like sympathy cards so I ended up with these 2 with images taken an MCS cd. I think the top one looks a bit symbolic of the 3 crosses so i'm happy with them. These next ones are really cute with the cow and chick image from Joanna Sheen's Rachel Hale cd Furry Friends.

I printed the whole page off and used various sizes to give different looks to the cards. I made a table in word and printed the little greetings banners then cut them out and rounded the corners.

These last 2 use images and backing paper from the Forever friends cd. The corners and bright yellow card are cut using Martha Stewart punches.

This card for my sister's birthday uses an image again from the Furry friends cd, she loves pigs so it is ideal for her. Not sure which pad the backing paper came from as it is an A4 sheet cut down to fit the 8 inch square card, possibly Henbury Lane.
